    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Columbia House's Volume 1 VHS release contains an error in its liner notes for this episode. It claims that Kam Tong's character of Hey Boy is named Kim Chang and that it is also the name of Tong's character from the series "Mr. Garlund." Hey Boy's name was Kim Chan and Tong's character on "Mr. Garlund" was called Kam Chang.

      • Desk Clerk: Good afternoon, Mr. Paladin. Glad to have you back.
        Paladin: Thank you. And my mail, please.
        Clerk: Yes, sir. Oh, I'm sorry, it must be in the Hold box. I'll have it sorted out and sent to your room.
        Paladin: Well, I'll take my newspapers now.
        Clerk: Yes, sir, here you are. Late afternoon edition.
        Paladin: No, no. My newspapers, they're kept separate for me.
        Clerk: I'm afraid I don't know about that, Mr. Paladin.
        Paladin: Well, Hey Boy does, where is he?
        Clerk: Hey Boy is no longer with us. He was discharged.
        Paladin: Why?
        Clerk: He hasn't come to work in almost a week. Certainly the Carlton can't tolerate that sort of thing.
        Paladin: Did it ever occur to the Carlton that Hey Boy might have a very good reason? He might be ill.
        Clerk: Well, after all, it's not our responsibility. I assure you, Mr. Paladin, the Carlton will continue to give you the same excellent service--
        Paladin: I've just had an example of your "excellent service". May I have Hey Boy's address?
        Clerk: Really, Mr. Paladin, it isn't that important. These people are very easily replaced.
        Paladin: May I have his address--or is your clientele easily replaced, too?

      • (Paladin and Chung greet each other in Chinese)
        Chung: Mr. Paladin. Welcome to the Mandarin.
        Paladin: Thank you, Mr. Chung.
        Chung: I trust that each dawn has brought a day of success.
        Paladin: And each dusk an evening of contentment.

      • Paladin: Maury Travis, section superintendent. Is this the man Kim Chan (Hey Boy) went after?
        Chung: When it is hurt, the most gentle kitten will have the fury of a tiger.
        Paladin: But still only the strength of a kitten, Mr. Chung.

      • Paladin: You're a target, Mr. Travis. Someone' trying to kill you. And I offer my services as a bodyguard.
        Travis: Why would anyone want to kill me?
        Paladin: Well even a saint has some enemies, and I doubt that you're a saint.

      • Paladin: These Chinese are small, but their memories are very long.

      • Travis: Do your services include nosing around in something that doesn't concern you?
        Paladin: Bad odors offend me.
        Travis: Your card says, "Will travel." Get started.

      • Paladin: Now, Sheriff, that's very careless of you. Leaving that door open, nobody around. Anybody could walk in.
        Sheriff: Well, the way I figger, Mister, that jails are like cemeteries. You leave the gates wide open; nobody wants to get in.

      • Paladin: His brother was buried under a load of railroad ties; what did you think, Sheriff?
        Sheriff: I didn't. It was railroad business.
        Paladin: Murder is a Sheriff's business.
        Sheriff: You gotta show me it's murder first. Now Mr. Paladin, I've been Sheriff of Coldwater for ten years. It's a nice quiet little town. Until somebody like you comes along, wearing an iron low, or Travis and his crew, riding roughshod over everybody. But none of you ever stay. You either move along or you're buried here. And I'm still Sheriff.
